When it comes to installing an air filter in the ceiling, the arrow should always point towards the ceiling. This is because air filters have arrows printed on the sides that indicate the direction in which air should flow through the system. This is usually away from the supply ducts and towards the blower. To make sure you have installed the filter correctly, you can put your hand in front of the vent and feel the air moving away from it.
A dirty or clogged air filter will reduce the efficiency of your oven and air conditioner, so it is important to make sure it is installed correctly. If you don't have a thin metal holder to help you determine which way to install the filter, you can still figure out which direction it should face. Simply put your hand in front of the vent and feel the air moving away from it. Installing an air filter in the wrong direction will not damage your system, but it will reduce its efficiency and cost you more money.
Before you change your oven filter, make sure you know its size and MERV rating. HVAC air filters come in different sizes, ranging from 12 to 24 inches (30.48 to 60.96 cm) wide and 12 to 36 inches (30.48 to 91.44 cm) long. When installing an air filter, it should always be oriented in the same direction as the airflow. This means that if it is placed on the ceiling, the arrow should point towards the ceiling; if it is on a wall, it should point towards the wall.
